What the Occupy protests tell us about the limits of democracy – The Washington Post

What the Occupy protests tell us about the limits of democracy – The Washington Post.

Funny, a naive person criticizing other naive people. Ok, fair point, the Post if full of naive idiots, but I’ll ignore that for a minute…

Applebaum is right of course in pointing out what lessons in actual political science (as opposed to the Marxist nonsense they teach nowadays) the hippies at the “occupy movements” have not learned.

But, and this is a big but: The system has failed. If only voting did bring about change, if only politicians were human.

The actual reality is that votes don’t matter and the vast majority of politicians are ultimately very much alike. And they don’t care about you.

P.S.: Yes, Mustaine for President! 😉
